All About Kings of Leon Music Albums

in Album

The Tennessee boyband Kings of Leon throughout their exceptional music career have rendered a total of five chartbusting albums. Right from Youth and Young Manhood in 2003 to Come Around Sundown in 2010, the Kings have showed off their outrageous transformation from Garage Rock to Alternative Rock.

Their initial album Youth and Young Manhood could be considered as a desperate attempt to get recognized and proved that Followill brothers are worth it, yielded good fruits. The band's influence of The Strokes and Lynyrd Skynyrd in their first album was pretty seen. Youth and Young Manhood is a perfect blend of the Kings' Southern roots and garage rock. It was released in the UK and alternatively in US, where it failed to attract modern listeners and thus sold only 100,000 copies. Although, Youth and Young Manhood was declared as ‘one of the best debut album of last ten years' by NME.

The next year, Kings rendered their second as Aha Shake Heartbreak, which was specially targeted for their international audiences. This was again based on similar lines as their previous release, though this time three of its singles rose to Top 10 in the UK.

Because of the Times was Followill Brothers' third release, which was number 1 on English and Irish charts and scored number 25 at European charts. Despite being Kings' fastest selling album in the first week of its release, most of the music publications rated it as an ‘experimentation' and even ‘epic-fail'. However, the album contained hit singles including ‘Fans' and ‘Charmer'.

In 2008, Only By The Night was released. This was the Kings' fourth studio album and thus a lot more was expected from the Southern rock band members. And so, Kings of Leon delivered what they were supposed to. Both Use Somebody and Sex on Fire emerged as the Kings' hit singles that achieved peak positions on the music charts. The latter track is the band's most successful track right up to the moment. Revelry, Notion and Crawl not only gained domestic popularity, but even internationally were loved by Kings' fans.

Their latest Come Around Sundown, a 2010 release is a good fruit of the Kings' hardwork. This one is more of loosening-ups and shows signs that Kings are now getting used to their fame and recognition and enjoying the fact. Come Around Sundown is again based on their initial Youth And Young Manhood, though conveys the chilled-out side of the Followill brothers.

Not only is their superb work evident in albums and music videos, but onstage too they know how they are supposed to treat their fans. If at all, there's a Leon fan in you, don't forget to grab the opportunity of meeting your favorite band up close and personal. So, book your Kings of Leon ticketswell in advance for their ongoing tour and get to see them watching perform live.
